Eligible to supervise Masters and PhD - email supervisor to discuss availability.


My research interests mainly include environmental epidemiology (climate change, workplace heat exposure, and infectious diseases) and the relevant statistical methods required for it, such as time-series analysis, logistic regression analysis and qualitative research skills.

Currently, I am doing an AusAid project with aims to investigate the public health impact of emerging and re-emerging infectious diseases due to climate change.

The climate change, ecosystem health and infectious disease epidemiology research group offers a number of research opportunities for students at a variety of levels including PhD, MPhil, Honours, MPH Coursework Thesis and Dissertation, MClinSci and Summer Vacation Scholarships. Details of the projects that are available for students in the climate change, ecosystem health and infectious disease epidemiology research group can be found in the School of Public Health Student Research Project Handbook.
